CACI facials – everything you need to know
CACI facials are a non-invasive aesthetic treatment that have been known to deliver dramatic results without the need for surgical interventions. Dubbed the ‘non-surgical facelift’, celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian and Linda Evangelista are huge fans – whilst some have even bought their own machine for use at home. Every now and again a beauty hack will appear and become the new ‘It’ trend – which often disappears as quickly as it became popular. CACI facials however have been around for over 20 years and now the red-carpet secret is more accessible than ever. With its popularity on the rise, we thought we’d find out a little more about the treatment so you can judge for yourselves.
What does CACI mean?
CACI stands for Computer Aided Cosmetology Instrument… don’t worry, it’s not as scary as it sounds! It’s a micro current machine that uses specific waveforms and ultra-low frequencies to transmit tiny electrical signals to boost muscle tone and skin tissue. It works in harmony with the body’s own bio-electrical field to help improve skin tone, texture and face shape.
What is a CACI facial?
The facial itself is an LED light therapy where warm, coloured light penetrates deep into the skin. Micro current facial toning is then combined with the light therapy to regenerate tissue and help repair collagen. The CACI facial can be described as a MOT for your face thanks to lymphatic drainage, peeling, cleansing and toning and it also works to banish deep lines, giving you the appearance of younger looking skin. Clever, right?
What machine is used?
All our CACI treatments use the CACI Ultimate Machine, as the name suggests this machine really is the ultimate aesthetic treatment system. It is the most versatile system available combining Microcurrent, Facial Toning, Crystal Free Orbital Microdermabrasion and LED light therapy.
Is a CACI facial pain free?
As the treatment is non-surgical, it works in tune with your natural body movements causing minimal pain. Beauty Therapist Dannielle at Regis Birmingham ensures ‘the treatment is extremely safe, like with all facials there can be side effects but our experts at Regis Birmingham are here to help you overcome those. There is also no need to worry about pain as the microcurrent works in tune with your body to stimulate the facial muscles.’
How many CACI facials are available?
All CACI facials are high-tech and made to suit all skin types. Regis therapists currently offer 7 different facial treatments:
Non-Surgical Face Lift – CACI’s signature treatment refreshes the skin to enhance glow and leave you feeling and looking more youthful. The Non-Surgical Face Lift is a highly respected treatment with twenty years medical research behind it.

Wrinkle Revolution – Amino-Lift Peptide Complex is applied to the specific areas of concern. CACI’S Wrinkle comb handset is then used to precisely exfoliate lines and wrinkles around the eyes, forehead and mouth areas.

Hydratone – Ideal for a special occasion or brides to be this treatment will deeply nourish and soothe the skin. Combining active microcurrent rollers with a unique, electrically conductive silicone gel mask that has been infused with powerful hydrating properties. The rollers gently massage the face causing the mask to become electrically charged so that the whole face is bathed with rejuvenating energy.

The 90-minute treatment offers a combination of microdermabrasion, microcurrent and red and blue light therapy. Includes a gentle pinching action to bring blood to the surface of the skin and promote fullness. Finished with the CACI mask which is cooling and soothing. An amazing pain free alternative to Botox and surgery.
Double Chin Lift – Double chins are very similar to cellulite often appearing when you reach your middle-aged years. This treatment uses Quad Probes specifically developed to target the muscles around the jaw line. These Probes emit tiny electrical impulses to lift, firm and redefine facial contours.
Body Treatment – Faradic technology uses a higher intensity output than microcurrent stimulation and aids the lymphatic system by stirring up any unwanted fats and training toxins to keep away from areas prone to blockages.
What do I need to know before and after a CACI facial?
Prior to your CACI facial you will receive a consultation so that your therapist can help establish the results you want and the possible outcomes with your chosen treatment.
The treatment itself lasts around 90 minutes, depending on your chosen facial and will feel warm and energising.
For optimum results, a course of 15 treatments is recommended followed by monthly maintenance sessions. Dannielle highlights ‘if you wish to change your skin it is important to have the treatments weekly followed by monthly appointments to help maintain the results you desire.’
fter you have received your CACI facial our therapists will advise you on aftercare products to use at home. These will help prolong and enhance the effects of your facial. Salon Manager Catherine recommends using the CACI Hydro Mask which you can purchase from our Birmingham salon. A popular choice for many celebrities including Anthony Joshua and Rochelle Humes. It contains moisturising attributes that replenish sun damaged and dehydrated skin. Working in line with your CACI treatment this masks antioxidant ingredients helps to smooth and soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
